I read reviews before starting recipe. I cut and marinated chicken before cooking. Based on other reviews, I did not add salt to marinating chicken. I used about 3/4 to 1 cup oil in a cast iron skillet and cooked in batches, held in the oven at 150 until all was done. I poured sauce over chicken before serving as suggested by one reviewer but sauce did not penetrate coating enough. Next time, I will do as original recipe suggests and toss chicken and sauce together before serving.
Overall an excellent recipe that you can play with. I'm going to try it with my homemade General Tsao sauce.
The batter was fabulous and not sure why another reviewer found batter too delicate. This was just like a good Chinese buffet. I added lemon zest and doubled lemon in sauce.
This meal was devoured by all. It got a suburb rating from both 8 yo son and DH. I did find that I had to salt the meal when eating and would salt chicken while marinating when I do this recipe again this week. Would have given 5 stars but chicken should be cut before cooking to maximize batter coating and flavor!
